MASCOTA: After the heavy rains of late summer, the narrow road climbing up the foothills of the Sierra Madres is filled with dozens of potholes, and the yellow paint on many of the speed bumps has been washed away, resulting in some unpleasant surprises.
The free mobile clinics always take place amidst the graceful columns and arches of the Club de Leones. This was the fourth visit by the vet team.

COLONIA INFONAVIT: PEACEAnimals has visited this easy to get to location just before crossing the river into the municipality of Pitillal, The clinic takes place in the empty police office across from a dirt field. In back of the field is a dirt road that leads to the Pitillal river. Sadly, the road is littered with trash and garbage. Much of it will be carried by the river into the bay and out to sea.
On Wednesday, Dr.Poli was the only vet able to attend and managed to sterilize 26 cats and dogs on his own.

MASCOTA TO YERBABUENA AND NAVIDAD: At Mascota we stayed overnight at the small Santa Lucia hotel boutique, a couple of blocks away from the main plaza.

YERBABUENA ("good herb"): After visiting the clinic on Wednesday, we drove fifteen minutes northeast on a tree-lined country road to the nearby pueblo of YerbaBuena, part of the municipality of Mascota. The interior of one of the three or four small churches was a pretty sight. Painted in pastel pink and green, the altar area was covered in white artificial flowers.

|PUEBLO DE CIMARRÓN CHICO -|
Climbing and endlessly curving, we drove past centuries-old, blackened low stone walls and hundreds and hundreds andhundreds of acres of cornfields glistening green in the soft sunlight. I felt the rush of air around a curve in the road and then saw the cascade tumbling down the forested mountain.
Thirty minutes after a dazzlingly beautiful drive from YerbaBuena, we arrived in Navidad, 6,102 feet (1,860 meters) high up in the Sierra Madres.

|VISTA DEL RESTAURANTE QUE NO TENÍA NOMBRE|
We walked up a flight of wooden stairs across from the plaza and found ourselves in an empty, rather large rustic restaurant. The waitress prepared fresh orange juice and tea and told us that she thought 150 people lived in her village. The extreme beauty of the drive to Navidad is the reason to visit.
